The hoary bat is often considered one of North America’s most beautiful bats. It is found throughout North and South America. Together with a close relative of South America’s red bat, it is one of just two bats to inhabit the Galapagos Islands. The hoary bat roosts in mangroves and caves, coming out at night to hunt for their insect prey. They hunt over open areas and lakes, using echolocation to find and catch their prey.
